IPL 2022: Ravichandran Ashwin Confirms He Will Not Be Retained By Delhi Capitals

Ravichandran Ashwin returned to Team India’s T290 structure after a seven-year absence when he was selected for the T20 World Cup in the UAE. The Tamil Nadu star had a strong campaign and bowled effectively in India’s last series against New Zealand. Despite a strong showing with the ball, the off-spinner is unlikely to play for the Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2022. With the IPL 2022 auction approaching and the addition of two new clubs, Ravichandran Ashwin suggested three players who might be retained by the Delhi Capitals for the IPL 2022 season.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Shreyas Iyer are unlikely to be retained by the Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2022 auction.

Ravichandran Ashwin said on his Youtube account that not only he but also Shreyas Iyer, will not be retained by the Delhi Capitals squad for the IPL 2022 season. He stated,

“I am not being kept by Delhi; if Delhi management had retained me, I would have known by now.” I don’t think Shreyas will be kept by the franchise.”

Ravichandran Ashwin joined Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020 after signing for 7.6 crores from Punjab Kings (Than Kings XI Punjab). In the 2020 season, Ashwin took 13 wickets in 15 matches, but in the 2021 season, the off-spinner only took 7 wickets in 13 games.

The new franchises are required to select no more than two Indian players, capped or uncapped, and no more than one foreign player. Prior to the mega auction, the remaining eight organisations have been allowed to keep four players. The salary budget for all teams in the IPL 2022 auction has been enhanced by Rs. 5 crores. In the IPL 2021, each franchise was given a salary budget of Rs. 85 crore to spend on players during the auction. According to ANI, the pay purse for IPL 2022 has been fixed at Rs. 90 crore. The last time franchise wage purses were adjusted was in 2018, at the previous mega auction.
